Welcome artists! 


Meet the Art Teacher...

Hello! My name is Taylor- students call me Ms. Penning (also, “Ms.Penny”). 

I was born and raised in Leominster. I love this town and am incredibly happy to teach my favorite subject in such a wonderful school. 

I graduated from UMass Dartmouth and studied Fine Art, Art Education, and Art History. I am currently in my Master's program studying advanced Art Education in the Elementary classroom. I am very excited to bring what I learn into our little art room and the minds inside. 

When I’m not teaching, I’m usually in my studio- drawing, painting, reading and watching films / listening to records or attending different art and culture events.

Fun Fact: Two of my favorite artists are Frida Kahlo and Kehinde Wiley. 

Art Room Mantra 

I am positive. 

I am creative. 

I am mindful.

I am amazing.

I belong here.

I am an ARTIST.
